No matter the season here at the lake, there is one constant…the sunrises and sunsets are absolutely stunning! This view never gets old; it puts off an overwhelming feeling of peace and gratefulness each day I have the opportunity to see it. And not to fear, snow will soon be draping the limbs and mountains before we know it.
